AMA guests to receive a little piece of moon

Stars appearing at Tuesday's American Music Awards will depart with a piece of the moon.

Lindsay Lohan, Will Smith, Missy Elliot and the dozens of other entertainers that are either presenting or performing at the award show will each be given a gift basket that contains nearly 100 free items — including ownership of an acre of land on the moon.

The gift bags will also include clothes, perfumes, watches, BlackBerries and other various electronics — adding up to a total value of approximately $33,000. They were assembled by Hollywood Connections, a gift bag specialist.

The moon "ownership" is done by a company called Lunar Federation that plans to have the first private mission to the moon, thereby allowing it to create a Moon government and secure land rights — or so it claims. Steve Stein of Hollywood Connections, though, acknowledges the gift is more for fun than anything.

The 33rd annual special will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Tuesday on ABC (8 p.m. EST). Cedric the Entertainer will host.

The American Music Awards honor the past year's elite in contemporary music as voted by record-buyers.
